About WORLD WIDE FUND (WWF) Philippines: #ChangeTheEnding Campaign
We are running out of time. Our commitments have not been able to sufficiently stop the environmental and climate crisis. Storms are now stronger than ever before and extinction rates have continued to rise, while human suffering continues to grow with the loss of environmental integrity. Scientists predict that we only have ten years left to reverse the current trend of environmental degradation – and we must act now.
Faced with the enormity of the task ahead, the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines is expanding its work in the holistic conservation of our natural resources and the protection of our planet’s biodiversity. From ridge to river to reef, we work with our partners in the co-creation of innovative solutions to the most pressing environmental concerns of today. We use science in the service of life as we continue to strive for a future where man lives in harmony with nature.
Despite having projects addressing biodiversity protection and climate change adaptation, WWF-Philippines will not be able to reverse the current crisis without everyone’s involvement. Our goal to protect the planet, a goal that must be shared by all, will not be realized if we do not all make changes to our lifestyles today. We need governments, businesses, and individuals alike not just to commit, but to act toward a more sustainable tomorrow.
This March, WWF-Philippines will simultaneously be holding Earth Hour 2020 on March 28, as well as launching the #ChangeTheEnding campaign. Over the next five years, we will work closely with our partners in focusing on scaled solutions to address the monumental and very urgent environmental challenges facing the present and next generations of Filipinos. We want everyone to know that while the situation is grim, we can still #ChangeTheEnding if we start acting today. We want all Filipinos to raise their voice for the planet, and to make nature matter.
We now stand at a flashpoint in human history. Our actions today will determine the course of all our futures. This Earth Hour, we invite everyone to join us in living differently today, for the sake of our planet and our shared tomorrow.
